Conservative Wiltshire Council started work on the first of eighteen Community Campuses with the new Springfield Community Campus bringing improved local facilities to Corsham.
This is the first of eighteen community campuses which the Council hopes to build for its residents. The Campus project is a critical component of the Conservative Council’s investment in Wiltshire. The campus concept where all leisure and other services provided by the Council and many of its partners will be provided on one new site is a nationally acclaimed concept being pioneered by the Conservative administration in County Hall
The Corsham Community Campus will be developed at the Springfield Sports Centre in Beechfield Road and will include an improved leisure centre and outdoor sporting facilities. There will be an all weather pitch, a community hall, activity rooms, meeting rooms, café, youth and learning disability facilities, crèche, council offices, registrar and neighbourhood police station.
Local people have had a real influence on what will be included at the new campus by being part of the Shadow Corsham Community Operations Board (COB). The board included local residents, the youth sector and schools, town and parish councillors, representatives from the existing leisure and community centres, a local community transport group and Corsham Area Board.

Conservative Councillor Alan MacRae, chairman of the area board, said: “I am delighted the campus has reached this stage, but it is all starting to feel much more concrete now that we are about to start construction. As the very first of the new campus buildings we are being watched with great interest by both local residents and other COBs, and we are very proud of what we have achieved.”
